The Valleys has more than enough to fill the longest of weekend breaks!

It’s one of the many unexpected things about The Valleys. Did you know, for example, that we’re home to one of Europe’s biggest and best medieval castles (it’s smack in the middle of Caerphilly – you can’t miss it)? Or the scenic Brecon Mountain Railway a narrow-gauge railway where you get on in Merthyr Tydfil and get off in the heart of the Brecon Beacons? Or our very own World Heritage Site at Blaenavon, an equivalent of the Taj Mahal and Great Wall of China?

All this together with numerous heritage sites, green country parks and great stories means that there is something new to explore each weekend!
